Toys Toys Toys in Cambodia: Monument Toys

It seems to be that I am not longer mainly a IT-Consultant but going into the toys business. I just started working in the Monument Toys Store, helping to set it up after the extension to 250 square meters. And more work has to be done.
So if you are looking for high quality toys like wooden toys from Plan Toys, like Lego oder Bandai, like Corolle - Dolls - lets say: from world brands - then have a look in our store on #111 Norodom Bloulevard, open daily from 7.30 until 21.00.

No riverview anymore in Phnom Penh

The most crazy thing I saw in the recent weeks is the new fence on the riverfront. Sometimes I really wonder who are the people are responsible for a nonsense like this. For the next 3 years - as an article in the Cambodia Daily told me - people sitting on the riverfront ion one of the bars, restaurants and caf├ęs will just have a look on a green fence, covering a drainage improving construction side. I hope one of the powerful people, how they are called here, will see this fence personally and will take action to remove it. Otherwise, the last remaining tourists will skip a visit to Phnom Penh. What will be understandable.
